A Spawn of the Dublin Pubs



A Spawn of the Dublin Pubs
(bootleg vinyl LP) Trademark of Quality (no number) Side A

  1. Saint Dominic's Preview
  2. These Dreams Of You
  3. The Way Young Lovers Do
  4. Bad Man Looking For A Fight
  5. More And More
  6. Listen To The Lion

  Side B
  1. Domino
  2. Warm Love
  3. Caravan
  4. Cypress Avenue

All of side A and "Warm Love" from side B recorded on May 24, 1973. The other three tracks come from May 27, 1973. No venue mentioned but apparently it was the Troubadour Club, Los Angeles. Appears to have been printed/pressed in at least two variants (sleeves shown above) with the variant at top suspected as being the earliest. On that variant, the image is on a standard 8 1/2 by 11 sheet glued in the center of a light blue album cover.

Sleeve Note (from variant 2 pressing):
"Van Morrison is too important and rewarding an artist to miss. He's as exciting a performer as we have in contemporary music. His excitement comes from the intensity of his performance. When you see him struggle on stage to achieve his own sense of perfection, you can understand the drive that is behind his creativity. There were moments during his show that he hit the peak and you could wish that everyone who had ever been moved emotionally by music could be on hand to share the excitement. - L.A. Times"
